Microsoft releases Windows 10 preview for Raspberry Pi 3


I believe the new pi upgrades were so they could run Windows; I also think Microsoft funded/helped fund the development of the boards (not certain of that - I think I read it on the Pi website), but to be honest I don't mind - I've got two quad core pis (one in house as a web server, another en route to be...well, something, probably a lightweight desktop). If MS's money made that happen quicker then who cares?

That said, we're an MS-only development set up at work and I'm not likely to put Windows on a Pi - I want the ability to switch on a full OS to play with sonic pi or whatever takes my fancy.
